HOUSTON – Abraham Quintanilla III, who goes by "A.B.," was taken into custody Wednesday. He began the month on the 10 most wanted list of fugitives released by the Nueces County Sheriff's Office in Corpus Christi.

Quintanilla is the brother of the late Tejano singer, Selena.

Quintanilla was sought for alleged contempt of court and nonpayment of child support.

The musician was a member of his late sister's group, Selena y Los Dinos. He also co-wrote music for Selena and produced songs for her.

The Grammy-winning singer was murdered on March 31, 1995, by Yolanda Saldívar, an employee who oversaw Selena's boutiques and fan club.

Quintanilla, 53, continued in the music industry, most recently as founder of the group Elektro Kumbia.
